Work Place



A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work experience placement to help prepare you for employment or an apprenticeship.


A Traineeship with DBC Training will provide you with:


  • help with getting work, such as writing a CV and finding a job

  • a work placement of 70 hours or more

  • help with the skills you’ll need for an apprenticeship or job in the area you want to work in

  • a job interview or an exit interview with written feedback from the employer

  • help with English, maths and basic digital skills (if you need it)


You are eligible for a Traineeship with DBC Training if you are:


  • aged 16-18 and not currently in education or training

  • unemployed, or work fewer than 16 hours per week

·      eligible to work in England

  • motivated to work but have little or no work experience


You may be ready for an apprenticeship if you already have some work experience.


What are the benefits?


Traineeship programmes can be tailored to meet your needs and prepare you for what local businesses are looking for. We’ll work with you to put together the qualifications, skills and work experience which are right for you.


A traineeship is a training programme and isn’t a job. Employers are not required to pay you for the work placement, but they can support you with expenses such as transport and meals.


If you are eligible, you can maintain your entitlement to benefits whilst on a traineeship as necessary.


Along with recognition of your learning, there will be support to link you with job opportunities.


You may also get:


  • expenses for transport and meals from your employer

  • financial support for travel, childcare or a disability from your training provider

  • support from your local Jobcentre Plus if you are eligible for work benefits
